Former Kaizer Chiefs defender David Kannemayer believes the club is heading the right direction to reclaiming its glory following new the acquisitions of new players at Naturena.
After offloading 12 players, Amakhosi brought in eight new players as they are assembling a new team. Zitha Kwinika and Ashley Du Preez joined from Stellenbosch, as well as Siyethemba Sithebe from AmaZulu, Mduduzi Shabalala the Chiefs DDC player, Swallows trio of Lehlogonolo Matlou, Kamohelo Mahlatsi and Dillon Solomons. Lastly, Amakhosi secured Yusuf Maart’s signature from Sekhukhune United.
“Its all good so far, seeing new fresh faces come in, its exciting. Change is always good, it’s a right step in the right direction, it’s a young team, I hope these players settle in very well and gel in the team,” Kannemayer told FARPost.
“There is still a long way to go and more work to be done, right now what’s important is making sure these new signings settle well and start delivering. The coach got a huge tasks of discovering right combinations that positive results may start coming.”
“These signings show that the board is backing Arthur [Zwane] to succeed that is why they are bringing all the players he wants to see on the squad.”
The 44-year-old believes coach Arthur Zwane should be given a bit of time and needs patience before he starts delivering trophies at the club.
“Its going to be a difficult, yet an exciting campaign, Arthur should be given time and everyone associated with the club; the board and supports should be patient and rally behind him. His first season should not be judged on winning any trophies, he is building a team that will compete in many seasons to come,” he concluded.
